*gets ready for a 6-hour shift*

OKAY SO LAWL. I ordered my bus tickets online and they were $20 each. And then the site was like OHEY, ROUNDTRIP? $10 OFF! So I just got a roundtrip to NYC for $30. DUDE. WHAT IS THIS. :DDDD

In about 2 1/2 hours I'm leaving for the bus stop, and then the bus leaves right around midnight tonight. Spending the two hours waiting by knitting and listening to the last two Eighth Doctor season two Lucie audios. Planning on sleeping the 6-7 hours on the bus so I'll be well-rested. The last thing I need is another 20 hour day running off four hours of sleep and then texting things like "I was sitting down a lot except for when I wasn't" (trufax). Espeeciially considering Monday night is the NYC Doctor Who s6 premiere! I WILL BE IN THE *SAME PLACE* WITH STEPHEN MOFFAT AND MATT SMITH AND KAREN GILLAN AND ALEX KINGSTON AND ARTHUR DARVILL. AAAAAAH!

Also, yanno, my original intent of seeing Born Yesterday with RSL. And being with awesome people youknowhoyouaaare. <333333

Staying in New York until Thursday, getting home that night, and then after Friday I won't be home again until like the 19th-20th. Yeaaaaaaah. :D

*finishes packing*
shinydinosaur: (dollhouse: brilliant idea)
First off, my Farmer's Market table was a rather good success this morning! I stood at my area for five hours and sold two things (and fixing a bracelet that's good-as-sold), but hey, $20 is $20. I was the only table there with knits and jewelry; everyone else was food or garden-related. I had many many complements, one of my favorites being that I'm a "young knitter", and several great ideas relayed to me in order to adapt what they thought was already something great into something even better.

OH LOOK. MY STORE. PIMPAGE. AND LOADS NEW JEWELRY.

Even if you fun f-listers do nothing but comment as to what stuff you like/dislike, that would make me happy. Things not listed yet: Firefly-inspired mp3/phone/anything carrier, same item but in camouflage, (I had another different one but I soooold it~) epic earrings I made of a gorgeous necklace that broke (and some scarf stuff that you can see in that second linked pic like the 8ft "electric snake" scarf that I adore).

And it seems like most of my April is totally packed with crazy and fun things!

April 3-8: making alpaca-related things; visiting recruiter; making TJ watch either more Doctor Who or Chess in Concert; probably streaking some temporary pink in my hair; prepping for NYC (and technically the other trip as well); getting my babysitting money I've waited for for like a month to help with both.
April 9: Alpaca Fiesta Festival! Sell awesome knitted things. Finish packing.
April 10-11: Head up to NYC on bus - see Born Yesterday at the very least, I HAVE to go eat at the Life Cafe this time, and especially chill/geek out with/glomp [livejournal.com profile] harbek and meet other awesome people I am told. :DDDD
April 14ish: Go home and wash like everything I just brought home.
April 15: Go see friend's play, spend night at boyfriend's house.
April 16-19: Get up EARLY, 6+ hr roadtrip to bf's future college and current place of my best friend <33; more roadtripping to Tennessee, then home again.
April 20-21: Get home, sleep for a month. /end
April 23: WAKE UP LONG ENOUGH TO WATCH DOCTOR WHO AND FREAK OUT.


TJ suggested to me that we bring Les Mis and "you can finally introduce me to Chess!" on our roadtrip, lawl.

Things I *will* be bringing:
- Doctor Who audios (specifically with Lucie, and hunt down the ones with the Word Lord)
- Looots of music. Probably burning CDs for the second trip to save iPod battery.
- Knitting to do (if I'm not sick of it by then, hah): RENT scarf, ipod cases, whatever.
- Camera! Journal! Ways to be creative and express my thoughts!
- Probably my external harddrive for the second trip at least, for chilling out and catching the bf up on Doctor Who (or trying to) during some downtime. Plan is to go through the specials (minus Planet of the Dead, boring) and charge through the epic of season five.

I WANNA GO BACK LIKE OMG. /end

Well, this is it. I'm two days from my 2-week class trip and I'm nervous as heck but SO FRAKKIN EXCITED WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN.

I've got a soccer game in a few hours, then going home to finish packing and triple-checking everything.

home -> airport -> DC airport -> Brussels -> Paris -> Rome -> Germany -> Austria -> home

I'm terrified of getting in an airplane again... my first flight was a 3-hour to Boston about four years ago and I don't do heights. Now I've got to survive seven hours straight in a plane. I'm really excited and happy that this is all happening, it's unbelievable. I'm so blessed to even be able to go thanks to so many people, and then doubly blessed with some spending money.

This is my first post in a while just 'cause I've been so incredibly busy. Quick update: my thesis is OVER AND DONE WITH. For now. I've got a 21 page rough draft completed and now to finalize and write the speech and give a defense in front of a panel of judges. But that's not for a little while longer. I've got some time to relax first. SO GLAD it's out of the way.

There's also the matter of whether or not I'm going to my school's gorgeously formal prom/meal (although it's nothing like prom and there's ballroom dancing), but that's a whole other story for another time when I'm not frantically typing this out before leaving for a soccer game which may be my first played game in ages. XDDD;;

See you all when I get back. There will be plenty of pictures (and maybe some video), that's for sure. :D
